Ubisoft revealed that Assassin’s Creed® Chronicles: China will be available Tuesday, April 21, in the UK for download on Xbox One while the PC and PS4 will release the next day, on April 22.
A young Assassin, Shao Jun, fled to the West to complete her training under the legendary Assassin Ezio Auditore and has returned, determined to restore the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
Players pick up Shao Jun’s story as she returns to China hell-bent on revenge. Her story will take players to famous locations across China, such as the Maijishan Grottoes, Port of Macau, The Forbidden City and The Great Wall. Armed with stealth, agility, and a combination of deadly weapons and equipment including a sharp and swift jian, a secret shoe blade and lethal rope darts and daggers, players will deliver payback to those who decimated the Chinese Brotherhood of Assassins.
Developed by Climax Studios in collaboration with Ubisoft Montreal, Assassin’s Creed Chronicles brings the thrill of being a Master Assassin to 2.5D. Brought to life by fusing the essence of Chinese 16th-century traditional brush strokes with more contemporary impressionistic styles, Shao Jun’s adventure will immerse players in a living painting as they traverse undetected across China’s historical landmarks.
